Default 5700 LCD Problem?

I just received my 5700 and upon turning it on, there is a single blue pixel that is present all the time on the LCD Monitor. This is not supposed to be there, correct?

Check if its also on your photos. If so - return the camera - it has a "hot pixel", which can be removed by a firmware update - dont try this yourself if you got warranty left.

If it show up, only to be on the LCD, live with it or return the camera.

The blue pixel is best seen on black background - check it on your PC - not the LCD.

Good luck.

Thanks for the advice. The SB-50DX wouldn't communicate with it and the camera would not fire the flash (it wouldn't even pop-up). It just kept showing the red SB flashing. However, newegg.com is happily going to exchange it and even send it out 2nd day air (which is how I ordered it).

I am upgrading from the 5000 so I hope all of this will be worth it.
